Therapy

Tired of endless office visits where you talk about a problem over and over without anything getting better?

Office-based therapy can be severely limiting.  This is because the problems leading people to seek treatment are rarely experienced within the sterile confines of an office, but instead play out in actual day-to-day situations, routines, and relationships.

 

Discussing a problem “from afar” in an office is not the same as doing something about it at the moment it occurs.  It is recognized that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches are the most effective treatments for the majority of psychological and psychiatric concerns (such as anxiety and avoidance due to OCD, phobias, panic attacks, or social anxiety; children's defiant or explosive behavior; family or relationship conflict; Tourette Syndrome and other habit control or tic disorders, etc.). 

 

However, few people seeking treatment are aware that when they are provided CBT in "real world" (i.e., home, school, and community) settings, they are likely to achieve significantly better treatment outcomes!

 

The reason that the vast majority of psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health practitioners have you come to the office is that this "real world" model of therapy has many challenges that few are willing to accept (e.g., the need to travel to and from clients in order provide care, or the need to be present in order to support and motivate a person with clear strategies as they confront their emotional struggles, etc.).  For more than 20 years, I've embraced this challenge!
